Bring roast potatoes! JC Carroll
A songwriter, composer and entertainer, member of The Members for 40 years. His songs are stripped down to bare bones acoustic and shine through the set as does his narrative and wit.

Four creative minds who joined forces in order to enrich the world with their art. Together they formed a band, playing a style best described as Psy-Glam, powerful but melodic.

Punk Rock n Roll straight outta out of Dorset. Sinful Maggie formed in 2014 and set out to show people you can have a punk band with an accordion and not play Folk, Gypsy or Celtic Punk.

JC Carroll Acoustic Show folk // punk

Born in a Cellar Bar in Camden that is a monument to the founding father of British Folk Guitar Davey Graham, this Band has more then a passing relationship with the Great Man, Bass player Tony Reeves accompanied Davey on his most Famous albums "Folk Roots and Beyond" and "Midnight Man", whilst Guitarist Joe Woolley was his last pupil and protégé.
Add to this mix singer songwriter and unreconstructed punk Rocker JC Carroll you get a new take on "Folk Blues and Beyond." From gentle Astral weeks style "Caveman TV" songs to Arabic/Jazz crossover "Golborne Road there is a fluidity to this Trio that encompasses so many genres and yet defies pigeonholes. Here you will find English Folk Songs, Appallacian Murder Ballads. British Blues , Arabic Jazz and JC's stories of live love divorce and death in the suburbs all wrapped in a deft accompaniment of String Bass, Guitar, mandolin accordion and Uke. Carroll's classic 1977 Sound of the Suburbs recently revived by Ade Edmundson's Bad Shepherds is represented in the set, but not as a folk punk pastiche its here as part of JC's Body of work, and for those of you who have been watching his progress from punk to accordionist to Film music composer, it's a great body of work and an interesting journey. His songs, stripped down to bare bones acoustic shine through the set as does his narrative and wit.

Jellly punk // pop

Mickey Howard, Guitars, vocals, “The Sods” “The Bobby Henry Band” also spawning Stephen Street the renowned record producer..
“Chelsea”, “Marty Wilde” “Patti Paladin” “Latin Quarter”… involved in so many bands and sessions over the years, what to leave out? Extremely versatile and dexterous. Loves being on the stage. A natural show off.

Vera Wild, Super-bass and vocals, from Switzerland, “The Sophisticated”, “Big Muff” and “Wild at Heart” arriving in England, one seriously cool maiden this, playing the slinkiest of bass lines with the ferocious power of a jet airplane one moment to the sweetest of melodies the next. A stage presence that defies you to look her in the eye,
As J.J is to the Stranglers, Vera’s original bass lines are an integral part of the JELLLY sound.

Martin Drees, Drums and Percussion. Martin’s decidedly individual style of drumming has caused many comparisons with Mitch Mitchell and Keith Moon.
“The Mobiles”, “Scintilla” and “Slapper” being some of his previous exploits. A powerhouse drummer, JELLLY would not be JELLLY without him.

Last but definitely not least, Ex Jimmy Getaway founder member Henry Carpenter Frontman, and vocalist completes the JELLLY line up. The newbie frontman comfortably replaces the previous singer with his vocal abilities bringing a new take to the proceedings. A charismatic performer/writer, Henry is definitely making his presence felt.

The tunes themselves are radio friendly ditties with a dark side, a twist, telling tales of the untold.

You need to see this band, If they play near you, go see them, take a friend. You won’t be disappointed.

Sinful Maggie punk // folk

SINFUL MAGGIE formed in 2014 and set out to show people you can have a punk band with an accordion and not play Folk, Gypsy or Celtic Punk.
Based in Dorset, England they have shared bills with the likes of Buzzcocks and Slaves. Despite far too many promoters getting their name wrong, Sinful Maggie’s following has continued to grow, and with their debut self-titled album on the way they’re back out on the road bringing their intensity and high-energy punk with them. The band makes no bones about wearing their influences on their sleeves; from The Clash and Stiff Little Fingers to Dead Kennedys, The Distillers and NOFX, but they aim to bring something different to the table. This has given them the chance place in the top 10 at a local music competition in both 2015 and 2016, and play The Big Top at Camp Bestival in 2015.
